I grew up in Pleasant Lake, Indiana. Like most of small town America, it was homey, beautiful, complacent, and really into John Mellencamp. I moved to Denver, CO in 2014, publishing my first book, War in October, in 2016. I toured the country to promote it, returning to Denver to work in the labor movement and finish my next novel. I have a beautiful wife and a slightly annoying but outrageously charming tabby cat.
